Chatfield Health Care provides family doctor services for a mixed urban area in Clapham Junction, West Battersea and Wandsworth. We are a four doctor practice occupying purpose-built premises on Chatfield Road, London SW11, with full disabled access, designed to facilitate the best possible primary health care in this area. We are located just off York Road, in close proximity to Wandsworth roundabout and Travelodge Battersea (see map).
In addition to our four partners, there are four salaried GPs, four practice nurses and two health care assistants. Our attached community staff include health visitors, district nurses, counsellor and a drug abuse community liasion officer. We hope to increase our community clinics to include midwives, chiropodists and physiotherapists in the near future.
Chatfield Health Care (formerly Winstanley Group Practice) is the result of the merging of our two former sites at Winstanley Road, Battersea and Old York Road, Wandsworth in February 2004 and the addition of Dr Pattabhi's practice based on Lavender Hill in December 2004. We now provide care for a patient population of just over 11,000.
Chatfield Health Care is an NHS practice in the NHS South West London area and provides services for patients living within Battersea and Wandsworth. The practice is part of the Wandle Consortium. A full list of local General Practices can be found on the NHS Choices website. Chatfield Health Care receives funding according to its general medical services contract held with NHS SWL in exchange for services provided for patients. The total income received from the NHS before expenses in 2010/11 was £1,369,000
The practice has an active Patient Reference Group (PRG) where patients meet regularly to discuss issues affecting the practice and to influence decisions about its future. As a patient of this practice you are encouraged to participate as your involvement in shaping the future of Chatfield Health Care is important to us. The PRG meets approximately 4 – 6 times during the year. Its purpose is to allow feedback between patients and staff and to make joint suggestions concerning how to improve the delivery of our services to patients. Our Local Patient Participation Report is now available (published March 2013), which includes the outcomes of the findings from our annual patient survey and the actions we are taking to implement any changes agreed by the PRG.
While we have attempted to make this website as comprehensive as possible, if time is of the essence, we have condensed all the information into our handy practice leaflet which you can download here.

While the 084 number is a lo-call number and beneficial in that it provides additional phone lines, thereby reducing the time you are held waiting in a queue, some mobile phone callers may be subjected to higher calling costs on some contracts. If this affects you, please be advised that the surgery provides a daily ring back service for all patients on request. Alternatively appointments are also available to book online.
